Nashville, TN (April 17, 2020)
Ernie Haase + Signature Sound has released Something Beautiful: Our Favorite Songs of Bill & Gloria Gaither. The Gaither Music Group project is available now across all music platforms.
Haase, Bill Gaither and Wayne Haun poured through Gaither catalog of over 700 popular songs and decided to reimagine several standards. Ernie Haase + Signature Sound’s rendition of “Because He Lives” recently landed on the Spotify New Music Friday Christian playlist while The Christian Post exclusively premiered the group’s “Then Came the Morning” video leading up to Easter.
Something Beautiful also includes collaborations with both Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, who have collectively garnered eight GRAMMY® Awards and 40 Gospel Music Association DOVE Awards. Bill Gaither joins Ernie Haase + Signature Sound on “It’s Beginning to Rain” while Gloria Gaither lends her voice to the quartet’s medley of Gaither classics.
April 2020 marks 30 years since Haase first met Bill and Gloria Gaither during his debut performance with the legendary quartet The Cathedrals at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville. Haase remembers, “Gloria took my hand before I went on stage and prayed for me asking God to give me His peace. I was a nervous 25-year-old kid, and that one act stabilized me that night and has stayed with me all these years later. They have always been there for me and have proven time and time again that they are more about the relationship than making careers.”
